Rabbit Hole, by playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, follows the lives of Howie and Becca Corbett. A life-altering accident turns their perfect world upside down and leaves the couple drifting apart. The story charts their search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path to lead them back into the light of day.


"The playwright David Lindsay-Abaire should be a familiar name to the general public. As a screenwriter, he is known for his work on Robots, Oz: The Great and Powerful and Shrek 3," says Anthony Nelson, SCP artistic director. "We have gone to great lengths to bring the fruitfulness of this material to life. And I don’t want to be misunderstood when I talk about this play not being appropriate for children. It’s not because of the true to life dialogue Lindsay-Abaire has constructed. It’s because of the adult themes of grieving and loss that the play explores. If anyone has ever had to experience the tragedy of losing someone or something close to them, then this play is going to speak to them. It addresses a lot of universal issues that I think a lot of people will relate with, and I know people will walk out of the theatre pleasantly surprised at just how moved they feel because of this production."


Making up the cast are Molly Bower, Megan McCullough, Shane Beeson, Becky Smith and Morgan Henard. Bower, Beeson and Henard, all from the Dallas metroplex, are new to the SCP stage.


"I have been extremely impressed with the cast on this show. This group is very dedicated to telling this story, and the amount of commitment I have seen from them has been a real treat to work with," says Nelson.
